Anthony C. Robinson
I'm Anthony Robinson - welcome to my home on the web. I am the lead faculty member for Penn State's Postbaccalaureate GIS Certificate and Master of Geographic Information Systems programs in the John A. Dutton e-Education Institute. I am also an Assistant Director for the GeoVISTA Center in the Department of Geography.
My research focuses broadly on designing and evaluating
geovisualization tools. I've done work in epidemiology, crisis
management, and national security domains. My most recent efforts
involve characterizing how users assemble and collect their analytical
results, studying the use of visualization tools using eye-tracking, and
exploring issues related to map symbol standardization in the context
of emergency management.
I'm very excited to be offering one of Penn State's first MOOCs on Coursera - Maps and the Geospatial Revolution.
